    This place is amazing . It’s the second time they help me with my shipment. Thanks to JR AND FABIN , man they were very fast replying and answering all my questions.
    Even thought the time difference between usa and china , JR was emailing back and forth with the company till midnight . I do really recommend this place . Even thought it’s my second time but I had many questions to ask and they were always answering with a smile . Thanks again and looking forward to do business again . God bless

    They did a great job with our shipment! They were attentive, efficient, friendly, detailed and at a very reasonable cost.

  • on 19.02.2022

    Great team with immense knowledge on vehicle import. Very quick to get into the real business without much wasting time or beating around the bush!
    The charge is comparatively little higher but that worth it for a hassle free business and at the end of day you a successful import and registration proved their ability.
    JR Lopez is prompt and add a personal touch in commercial business which is rare now a days. Wish him great success and growth on Marine Air Land!

    First class experience & recommend them highly.

  • on 27.01.2022

    First time importer here. I was dealing directly with the president of the company who took his time to explain how the process works, what to expect, etc. The responsiveness was second to none, always calm and clear with process. i could not ask for a better experience when dealing with a company!

  • on 23.11.2021

    Job well done! Great communication by JR and his team. They are the consummate guide to importing into the US. For me it was I vehicle and I was pleased with the result.

  • on 20.10.2021

    Very pleased with the service provided by JR and his crew. I'm not very experienced in importing, bought a vintage motorcycle in Spain. The seller, Albert Pons ( a good guy) recommended MarineAirLand, and I am glad he did. They made the process very easy and the bike was delivered to my driveway right on schedule. I could not have asked for better.

  • on 01.10.2021

    Dont recommend for anything. They took to long to answer my emails and my day to pick up passed , takes to long to clear customs , is not very clear with the process. Just wasted my time and money and i cant pick up my goods because there is missing information i do not recommend this place at all.

  • on 08.09.2021

    Jr and his team are very professional and make the process very smooth and easy. Communication was great all the time and they are always there to answer all questions. Marine Air Land International are by far the best in the industry they are just extraordinary in every way.
    Highly recommend them for all your imports.

  • on 28.08.2021

    truly Grateful to have the watchful eyes of Marine Air land, cargo making sure my cargo will be received& trucked to me in quick order, Deeply Grateful for JR. kindness& helping me & this Shipment, all very good.

  • on 10.08.2021

    Contacted JR at Marine Air Land. He and his team went to work. I needed Customs paperwork for a car I imported 15 years ago. Within 5 days I received Customs paperwork from JR. After I received the paperwork, I then received an invoice. Took the paperwork to CBP and they commented on how well the Customs paperwork was filled out. It's Monday morning and my Mini Cooper is licensed, registered and title in the US. Thank you JR and Marine Air Land.

  • on 13.07.2021

    I'm so grateful to God for blessing me to find this company. I'm pretty new to doing business overseas, so importing goods was a bit confusing to me, so I reached out to JR. Let me tell you, the ENTIRE process was smooth, JR and his team was diligent, honest, kind and so professional. Fabian was awesome when helping me with delivery, and both him and JR assured me that they can be trusted as well as their delivery guys (I was a little nervous at first, because this was my first time importing goods this way). I just received my shipment today, and their delivery guy was so nice and helpful. If I can give them 10 stars I would. Trust me, you can most def trust them with all of your international needs! —Kristin T

  • on 20.05.2021

    I would highly recommend this company. Thank you JR for your professionalism and quick respond to all my questions when I had no idea how this process worked. It was much appreciated.

  • on 23.03.2021

    I highly recommend them!!! They made my life very easy! They answer all of my concerns really well! They make sure they answer your concerns fast by responding to emails.

  • on 25.02.2021

    By far the best costumer service in the industry. Whenever I need anything done, I will only come here. JR and his team is always on top of the work and will deliver for you on time. They are extremely responsive and will explain all details as tedious as it is.

  • on 13.11.2020

    First time importer here. I'm a game designer and I had my first board game manufactured in China. I had ZERO clue what I was doing with regard to importing games into the US and I just feel so fortunate that I stumbled onto JR and his team.

    I mean honestly it was pretty amazing. From the first phone call JR put me at ease. He walked me through the process and didn't seem rushed or anything. Then from there they pretty much took care of EVERYTHING shipping related. And talk about responsive. I knew I was a rookie but JR was always super responsive. Maybe 3 hours tops between when I would ask a question or inquire about something until JR would email me back.

    I do want to admit that I did not 'shop around'. So I have no clue or reference as to how competitive they are with regard to cost. After the first phone conversation I was like 'these are the guys I'm using'. So it may be that shipping and importing can be done at a lower cost using some other method or company. I really don't know. But for me I'm sold. And unless someone offers me the same service and worry-free experience at half the cost (extremely doubtful) I plan on continuing to use Marine Air Land international Services well into the foreseeable future.

  • on 28.10.2020

    JR and his team were great! This was my first time importing anything and I had no idea what to expect. JR took great care to explain everything and lead me through the process. I would definitely use their services again. Highly recommend!

  • on 31.07.2020

    Marine Air and Land is absolutely one of the best vendors I've ever worked with in my 40+ year career! They are extraordinary in every way. I have no reservation of recommending their services. They are remarkable.

  • on 21.07.2020

    We hired Marine Air Land as our customs broker for a one-off import of material handling equipment. The gentlemen that we worked with were very knowledgeable and up front about policies, costs, laws, etc. The prices were also very reasonable. They were very easy to work with and very responsive. Unfortunately there was a bit of a delay in notification of arrival/availability of our imported goods but overall everything went very smoothly. I would highly recommend them, especially for small businesses inexperienced with importing.

  • on 09.07.2020

    JR was amazing. So professional and courteous. I regret not hiring him from the beginning before the vessel even left the port. There was a problem with the ISF that was not filled right by the shipper. But JR knew exactly what to do. He made it so easy on me. I will do business with JR and Marine Air Land again without hesitation.

  • on 16.06.2020

    JR made sure everything went smoothly. Very professional, trustworthy and reliable. Would definitely recommend!

  • on 29.05.2020

    Quick, friendly and detail oriented service. This was our first time importing from abroad and clearing customs and JR & Fabian made the process quick and easy, we will definitely use them for our future shipping & logistics needs.

  • on 17.12.2019

    They just delivered my sea shipment hours ago. Excellent service and affordable price. If you need custom & clearance don't hesitate to contact them.

  • on 16.10.2019

    Marine Air Land International just finished managing our first shipment from India. JR and his team did an amazing job. All the details were taken care of and there were no issues. They're communication was outstanding and my calls were returned quickly.

  • on 16.08.2019

    I found their service top notch and highly recommend them.

  • on 26.06.2019

    One of the best companies I ever worked for. Great people to work with!

  • on 18.06.2019

    Amazing Service! Great customer help and guidance. This was my first time working with importing and a broker. They helped make it streamline and easy for us. HIGHLY recommend working with them. On time and great follow-up :)

  • on 15.06.2019

    Fabulous Team Work, Thank you Marine Air Land Intl Services

  • on 14.04.2019

    JR was awesome I highly recommend his knowledge and service! Very friendly and made the process almost seem easy! “Which it’s not” but thanks to him I have my cargo and I have found a broker 100% he will be the only person I call my next go around! Thank you JR!

  • on 02.04.2019

    JR and Antonio were fantastic to work with. They made my first time importing a couple vehicles from Japan very easy and helped with all my questions and concerns. Would absolutely recommend them to anybody doing the same.

  • on 28.03.2019

    I'm so grateful for the amazing services from this company. This is my first time doing imports and there are so many questions on the way. But the expert team lead by JR and Antonio were wonderful and helped me through every steps of the process. We highly recommend them to anyone in the import/export business!

  • on 08.03.2019

    To the lay person Importing or Exporting items from country to country sounds complicated and so much so that one would almost for go the effort. This is not the case .
    From the very first phone contact with MLAIServices my hopes for importation started to look promising and in fact easy. The agent laid out a simple plan for execution and asked questions pertinent to the shipment . The call was followed up with the necessary forms emailed to complete. I was asked to provide ID and related photos and documents.
    The exercise took several contacts by phone and email. In the process I dealt with two of the agents there and truthfully I couldn't tell you which one was more delightful to speak with.
    As a customer this company will treat your shipment as there own and with thier years of experience will navigate you through any obstacles.
    The fees requested were more than reasonable and frankly less than expected.
    Bottom line = "you won't find a better Company to handle your cargo"

    Sincerely ,
    Mike McMichael

  • on 08.03.2019

    This company is amazing! My husband and I were first time importers and we hit a couple of snags along the way, but JR and Antonio were wonderful and helped us through the process. We definitely recommend them to anyone in the import/export business and be assured that you will be in good hands!

  • on 01.03.2019

    For those who are out there, looking for a company to help them export or import goods I highly recommend you to use Marine Air Land International Services. Easy to work with, they will provide a peace of mind, all you have to do is sit back and relax and they will make sure that you get the best possible service especially if it's your first time dealing with such services. What I enjoyed the most was that whenever I had a question email response within the hour even on Holidays. I wish you all the best and looking forward to working with you again with no hesitation.

  • on 27.12.2018

    Highly recommended! I received my shipment without any issues, it was a super smooth transaction, everything was explained very well to me, and they went way and beyond with their customer service! Just a great experience overall.

  • on 14.12.2018

    I have imported vehicles in the pass and usually take care of the hole Process my self. This time was different, I did not have time to clear it my self so I decided to get a broker. I use JR and the process was supper easy he tock care of everything from clearing it, to scheduleing the shipping from the port to my house. I definitely will use them again.

  • on 24.10.2018

    Thank you so much for the awesome job you did it you guys are the best and have a blessed day

  • on 11.08.2018

    We got the delivery today, nice and early. Thank you for making an effort to let me know that you will go above and beyond. I really appreciate it and will continue to work with you because I trust things will get done right.

  • on 04.07.2018

    These guys know their stuff. They are fast & efficient. I have worked with them number of times.

  • on 04.07.2018

    I had little experience with importing. They answered all my questions and more. Would recommend to anyone trying to import.

  • on 22.06.2018

    JR and his team were great! They handled my shipping concerns as I had no experience within this type of field and the smoothly handled everything for me, walking me through each step and made sure each signature given was well understood and accepted by all parties. Next time I have another item that needs to go through customs, JR will be the guy to go to! Marine Air Land international Services are an exceptional team with intelligent customs brokers, ready to handle any job thrown at them! Great group of people

  • on 16.06.2018

    I had a pleasure to work with Marine Air Land the way I have expected. Easy contact, knowledge, very good customer service. That's company I will call first again. Recommend

  • on 20.03.2018

    It was a pleasure dealing with JR and his team. I highly recommend them.

  • on 13.03.2018

    Thank you so very much for such fast and friendly service.

  • on 08.03.2018

    JR was an absolute dream to work with. This being my first time of importing anything, he practically held my hand through the entire process. He was able to answer any questions I had, and returned calls and emails almost immediately. I would recommend this company without hesitation.

  • on 24.02.2018

    JR at Marine Air Land is terrific. Very pleasant, knowledgeable, and fast to respond. He worked directly with my supplier (keeping me in the loop, too) to really make sure the whole process went smoothly. This was our first experience importing goods directly and JR made us comfortable during the whole experience. Marine Air Land is an excellent resource.

  • on 22.02.2018

    First time importing and it went smooth thanks to JR Lopez he is amazing and helped me out step by step and was really patient with me I would definitely call him if I ever import again thank u agin u were great I appreciate all ur patience and work

  • on 04.01.2018

    Marine Air Land is a very professional company. It was the first time for me importing goods from abroad and once I contacted them and told them about my needs they got going right away and told me everything I needed to do so they could take care of the whole shipping, customs, and delivery process (with delivery right to my door). They have years of experience and it shows. The whole process was very smooth and they were always upfront and honest about fees and estimates and there were never any bad surprises. I can highly recommend them for importing services.

  • on 06.11.2017

    I've been dealing with ,Mike Lopez, for a boat import. This guy is very unorganized, cant read emails or return calls. I've given him all the information that he has requested now twice and I can't get an answer from the guy if he is handling my file or not. This has been two months now!!!

    do not recommend working with these people, very unprofessional

  • on 25.09.2017

    JR Lopez was great to work with! He was extremely informative, knowledgeable and responsive! First time importing from China - the whole thing went very smoothly. They even handled the shipping from the port to our building. We would use Marine Air Land again without hesitation!

  • on 15.09.2017

    This is my first online review. I was extremely happy working with this company. I want to appreciate JR's help. It was my first time receiving a container from overseas and I had zero experience about the stuff. JR helped walked through all the stuff step by step. He was always responding fast with an answer. I guess we sent around 40 emails and he was patient enough to answer all of them. I strongly recommend their services.

  • on 07.09.2017

    Review From BULLY TIRE CO.

  • on 16.08.2017

    Clear directions of how to proceed and easy to work with.

  • on 28.07.2017

    Made the process very easy and kept in constant communication from our first contact to when products were delivered. I highly recommend for both first time importers or someone looking for a fresh change in Brokers.

  • on 28.03.2017

    These guys made customs clearance so easy - fully recommend.

  • on 17.03.2017

    They are very fast and courteous. They handle customs clearance without delay and made me feel like we have been doing business for years. I will look no other place to handle my International shipping needs. Thank you very much.

  • on 16.02.2017

    It's the second time I use their service. Like the first time the service is excellent. They always keep me posted. The communication is just awesome.

  • on 17.12.2016

    If you are looking for professional customs brokers, look no further. JR, Mario and Fabian from start to finish take care of business. Every step of the customs "journey" is documented and the customer is notified via email of every twist and turn. When you call their phone number, they answer....and are more than willing to answer ALL of your questions and concerns. If there was a 10 star rating, this family owned business has earned it. Thanks again guys for your honesty, integrity and running a clinic on "how to run a successful business where the customer is first."

  • on 13.07.2016

    J.R. and his team are extremely professional and have been great to work with for my import needs. I was brand new to international importing when I first contacted them after they were recommended by an associate of mine. Unlike several other import companies I contacted, J.R. immediately recognized my needs and walked me through the entire import process, explaining regulations, ISF forms, bonds, duties, timelines, in a way that was clear and strait forward. Since then, I have used his company to assist in several of my incoming shipments and all have gone extremely smooth. I consider myself a very small fish, and I was blown away by the level of attention they were able to give me. Most of the time when I contact him or his team, someone gets back to me within MINUTES. I would highly recommend this group to anyone with import needs. Thanks again J.R.!

  • on 29.06.2016

    I have never imported products from overseas and it seemed like a daunting process. As others have said, JR at Marine Air Land will take the time to explain the process in detail in addition to the costs. What seemed like a daunting process now seemed easy.

    It is also very rare to have a company that responds via email at lightening speed. JR was my point of contact and he would respond very very quickly and thoroughly to my emails to alleviate any concerns or mitigate any issues. This is absolutely essential when dealing with overseas vendors that are waiting for responses.

    We received our products without any issues, complications or surprises. I cannot recommend JR highly enough as he did an outstanding job for us.

  • on 03.06.2016

    Just completed our first import from China and have to say Mario Lopez made the whole process seamless from start to finish. Shout out to Antonio also. Everything from contacting our supplier for the details, to arranging the delivery to our warehouse. Couldn't have gone any better. Would highly recommend Marine Air Land if you are a newbie at importing.

  • on 02.06.2016

    I picked JR by chance as he came first on Google.
    And, O'boy it was a Bon Chance.
    I was clueless. Just went on Alibaba and ordered an
    ebike from China.
    Never thought about what will happen on this side, customs,
    and all.
    JR was very patient with me explaining and leading me through
    all the steps, and Voila, today I picked up the Bike.
    With JR on my side I intend now to buy directly from China with
    the same confidence I have as in buying from Amazon.
    Compared to what I was charged by JR, he spend an inordinate
    amount of time on my case seeing it thru.
    I cannot think about a better treatment.

  • on 03.05.2016

    Our company has used MAL on many occasions. The service has always been professional and persoanable with a complete understanding of the sometimes complicated processes required for export shipping. Thanks Mike.

  • on 27.04.2016

    Mike Lopez is the Best! Use them.

  • on 23.04.2016

    Marine Air Land is an expert in Customs Clearing. I highly recommend Marine Air land International Services.

  • on 10.04.2016

    JR helped our company tremendously with understanding import policies and arranging everything for delivery. I search the internet quite a bit, policies and details that took hours to read though, JR summarized in 15 mins, my advice call MALI and get the help you need quickly. Great team there.

  • on 10.02.2016

    I had 3 strikes against me but they turned it into a home run!! First I was new and had no clue what to do. Second my shipment was scheduled to leave the next day and lastly it was Chinese New Year. I called in a panic and JR was calm and handled everything. I am beyond grateful and will use them for all of my importing and shipments.

  • on 21.01.2016

    Shipped my car Guam to Oakland. They were helpful filling out the unreadable forms and were great following up with the shipping company. I had no issues picking up my car either. All in all, it was good doing business with them.

  • on 08.12.2015

    I just completed my very first international import order with Marine Air Land Services. The service surpassed my expectations and made everything VERY EASY at the most hectic import time of the year, Christmas Q4. There is no doubt I will use this service again. I highly recommend them.!

  • on 27.10.2015

    Marine Air Land is Highly Recommended!!! They handled my first international shipment and were patient and explained every charge I should expect. They walked me through the timeline and kept me informed so I knew where my merchandise was at all times. Jr. Lopez was never too busy to answer my questions. I will use them for all of my customs clearing.
